I need to use mathematica's graphics to explore a certain
kind of problem.The following theorem is not yet proven nor disproven and
mathematica might proof useful in disproving it though.
Hypothesis:If a mapping from R^2->R^3 is unit distance preserving then it
must be an isometry.
The real issue at hand is for mathematica to generate a mapping that
preserves unit distance but is not an isometry so in the process disproving
The real problem is that R^2 consists of infinite points and it might
not be possible to check all of them.What i suggest is that you apply the
unit preserving maps to special type of figures in R^2 like the circumfrence
of the circle,square,isoceles triangle etc.
Any ideas are welcome.Thanks in advance.
